    “I am more than ready to graduate because in college my classes will be spread throughout the day, I won’t always have to wake up super early like I do now for school,” stated another senior from Pocomoke High School named Diamonique Taylor. I am also very excited for a new beginning and a fresh start, I’m excited to get a start on my future and career that will soon be the rest of my life,” said Taylor.

    Of course with graduation comes more than just a diploma and a great achievement of hard work, responsibility as well as a sense of independence and adulthood have to all kick in.

    “In college i will have to take more responsibility than I ever had to during high school, professors will not remind me that I have a paper due the next day, I will have to stay on top of things and remember when assignments are due and if i have completed them yet or not,” stated a Pocomoke senior Alexis Cullen.
